I see the photos.
that is just some extra gluteal fat
it is not a worrisome finding
if his hips are moving ok and not clicking,then he has no hip dysplasia.
sounds like he is very healthy
it doesn't sound like he has hip dysplasia.
you can watch the video to learn about checking for hip dysplasia.
I think it is just some extra gluteal fat on one side.
and not from anything bad.
it doesnt' sound like he has a hip issue.
developmental delays and developmental dysplasia of the hip can cause it.
but it doesn't sound like he has these issues.
no, this is not true .
if he is kicking his hips and legs, he doesn't have hip dysplasia.
have him see his pediatrician.
I bet they will not be worried about his hips.
just a little extra gluteal fat.
I don't see any swelling.
I had to see a patient.
I would not worry
it doesn't sound worrisome
I see no edema
I think it is just an extra roll of gluteal fat.
yes, this indicates that it is just fat.
and no edema
and not from hip dysplasia.

do you see the ratings area below?
it may not
it could stay like that for his life
or he could grow out of hit when he gets older.
there is no way to predict how it will turn out.
what was not there?
that doesn't indicate anythin.g
it means he is well fed.
you are feeding him well.
no, it is not uncommon
it is not a dangerous sign.
you don't have to worry about hip dysplasia.
we have been through that already.
he doesn't have hip dysplasia.
I have to see a patient now.
the pain sign would be that he would not be able to kick his legs
and he would have a clicking sound if you try to abduct and adduct this hip joint.
he doesn't have these signs.
so he does not have hip dysplasia.
you would be able to feel the clicking.
do you have any other questions?
the best way to tell hip dysplasia is to move the hips.
if the hips move properly, then he doesn't have hip dysplasia
yes, I think it is extra fat.
I have told you this already.
yes, moving his legs up and down and in and out
if he can do this, then he doesn't have hip dysplasia.
